This document contains the latest information about the protocols, preventative measures and changes adopted in Norway in response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Sunvil has offered holidays here since 2008. Norway inspires images of dramatic, rugged mountains, fjords, picturesque villages and a landscape that is second to none. In one of Europe’s most sparsely inhabited countries, these elements are reality. Norway inspires images of dramatic, rugged mountains, fjords, picturesque villages and a landscape that is second to none. In one of Europe’s most sparsely inhabited countries, these elements are reality. Stretching from the North Sea coastline to the borders of Finland and Russia, this delightful country is largely unexplored by UK visitors. Travel off the beaten tourist track and you will discover a country rich in history, charming small towns and friendly locals.

Since lockdown was announced, and before, we have been closely monitoring government guidance, regional policies and have maintained a continuous dialogue with our colleagues in Norway. Below we have highlighted the facts and guidelines. It is important to note that guidelines are being updated daily and you should contact us should you have any specific questions or concerns.

Arrivals

Norway has been categorised as "Rest of the World" by the UK government. As such the following testing requirements are in place - for arrivals into England on/after 04 October.

If you have received both vaccinations (more than 14 days prior to departure):

  • A completed UK Passenger Locator Form (PLF).
  • Testing on return to the UK: A Day 2 test is required. This test must be ordered before your return to the UK and evidence of this purchase must be added to the UK Passenger Locator Form.

Evidence for passengers in receipt of both vaccinations (one of the following):

  • The NHS App: This application is valid on smart phones and tablets and requires ALL passengers to register for their own account. The account is connected to your NHS number, date of birth and postcode. The application will display your Covid-19 vaccine record.
  • An official certificate from the NHS: This certificate can be obtained by calling “119” from any UK landline or mobile (or by dialling "111" if resident in Wales). This request takes c.5-7 days to receive.

You should check that your name on your passport matches how it is displayed on your NHS Covid App/cartificate (Pass). If the names are different, contact your GP practice to have your details updated. Middle names are not required on the App/certificate.

We recommend that you travel with printed proof of your vaccination status.

 

If you have received both vaccinations (more than 14 days prior to departure):

  • Travellers not in receipt of both vaccinations are not permitted to travel Norway unless meeting certain criteria. As such, Sunvil is not promoting leisure travel to the country in this instance.

Children - 5-17yrs:

  • Testing on return to the UK: A PCR test on/before Day 2 is required. These tests must be ordered before your return to the UK and evidence of this purchase must be added to the UK Passenger Locator Form.
